“Sorry”

Every artist has their own niche and strengths that makes them unique and Joyner Lucas is a phenom when it comes to painting pictures with his words. Taking situations from peers and re-creating the emotions and feeling through his story telling. On his most recent song “Sorry” Joyner tackles the difficult topic of suicide as he depicts a chilling story of a suicide victim and his friend, posing questions about life looking for answers that will never be answered. Raising the hairs on the back of your neck as he pulls on your heart with his emotional choice of words accompanied with gut-wrenching visuals. Shedding light on a problem most listeners have experienced personally, but don’t discuss publicly. Bringing awareness to suicide and leaving a help-number encouraging listeners to call if they know or feel like committing suicide or having suicidal thoughts. Joyner tells a story and sends a message while delivering great lyrical cadence and flawless musical production. Don’t hesitate to stream “Sorry” below and as always…

B.A.S.I.C

Eric Williams II better known by his stage name B.A.S.I.C. (an acronym for Be About Success In Controversy) is an up and coming American hip-hop artist with much promise. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the Aspire To Inspire Music Group representative came out of the shadows when he made it to the final round of Norfolk radio station’s 103 Jamz Fest in the summer of 2012. Since then he has been in the studio working hard and hitting the scene, especially after the release of his project in March 2013 titled “XXV (25)” collage of lyrics that express feelings, stories, and lessons learned from his journey as a 25 year old man in Virginia. Shortly after its release, B.A.S.I.C. won Hip Hop Artist Of The Year, as well as winning the Mixtape Of The Year Award sponsored by DS Magazine. While constantly connecting with people via social media on a personal level to organically build his fan base, B.A.S.I.C. has performed countless times all over within his hometown and has also gained notoriety by performing in North Carolina, New York and Connecticut. In November of 2014, he released a self-produced and personal song called ‘Ups & Downs,’ the first single from his upcoming album “E,” that received air play on 103 Jamz and substantial traffic on various blogs. With claims of this particular album being his most personal and reflecting body of work, B.A.S.I.C. is hedging forward in showcasing his talents and abilities as a staple in Virginia’s hip hop culture, while pursuing and reaching the globe over.

Super Origami

This past week Da Bassment had the opportunity to sit in on a residency night in Cincinnati at The Comet. The vibrations were elevated and the music was electrical, Super Origami put on a show. Combining music art and  culture in one building, using their sound to break down social stereotypes and speak on injustices as well as everyday life. The room was packed and filled with people from all walks of life connecting through the music. There was a cohesiveness between everyone who attended last night’s show and the love was truly felt and genuine. The live instrumentation quickly got the crowd to their feet, within seconds more than half of the audience was front and center dancing laughing and having a good time. The nostalgic vibes of the venue (The Comet) accented perfectly with their sound, placing you in a different time zone similar to the 70’s with free spirits, righteous hippies and revolutionaries.
